Lemon Cream Pancakes

Lemon Cream Pancakes

These pancakes are perfect for a spring or summer breakfast – light and fluffy with a hint of lemon.  They are the perfect base for fresh berries and maybe a spoonful of sweetened yogurt or cream.  I love these – they taste like sunshine!  This recipe is from the Joy of Cooking – one of my favorite cookbooks!

Lemon Cream Pancakes

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup sour cream

1/3 cup milk

grated zest of two lemons

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

3 tablespoons butter, melted

1 egg

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Quickly mix the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients.  The batter will be thick and bubbly.  Cook on a non-stick griddle, flipping when bubbles appear on the surface.  Serve warm with berries and cream.  Enjoy!

The total cost for this recipe is $2.65 and it makes twelve, 4-inch pancakes – not too bad!  I’m not sure how much pancake mix is, I don’t buy it because I think it’s just as easy to mix them from scratch.

What are your favorite spring/summer breakfast ideas?  I’d love to hear from you!  I hope you try these pancakes – you will love them!

  1. Stephanie, you’re killing me w/ these yummers….(trying to downsize the waist line) BUT I adore all things lemony so I’ll have to give these a taste test. 🙂


  2. Oh no! I truly thank you for the like on my last post, but now that I’ve discovered your blog, I’m in big trouble because I literally want to make EVERYTHING on here!

  3. Is my bed made yet? Seriously…I’ll sleep in the barn, garage, in the dog house, wherever, but I’m heading north. Blueberries are starting to come in about now. This could be a breakfast made in heaven. 🙂 Just Pinned to my Pinterest board. Can’t wait to try these!

  4. I really mus try this, they look so good. Many years ago while house sitting in Seattle I thought that I would try and make pancakes the result was a total failure just a blue acrid fog that permeated the whole house and a sink full of pans. Its high time I tried again and will be sure to let you know how it goes!
